Three more types of synthetic drugs are now illegal in Shelby.

City Council approved the ban Monday night, to keep up with new types of bath salts and synthetic marijuana that were not already banned. 

Police Chief Charlie Roub says chemists keep coming up with compounds that are not covered by existing laws, and they need to stay on top of the latest trends.

He says the city ordinance is good for now, but will likely be expanded as new synthetic drugs come out.

There was a time when Shelby Police did not know about the effects of bath salts, but officers take regular training and are learning quickly.

Chief Roub says Shelby does not have a problem with businesses selling synthetic drugs, and they're found on people only occasionally.

Distribution or possession of then is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by six months in the county jail and a $1000 fine, under Shelby's ban.
